Meet the winemaker: Daniel Ramos - Spanish Tasting
Daniel Ramos, an Aussie born winemaker, known to his mates as Kapi (El Capitan), exudes quiet and deep enthusiasm for his homeland, and its diversity of terroirs. In fact, he is so passionate about this area, that Daniel has saved, and brought back to life, some of the best remaining old vineyards nestled in the harshlands of the Gredos mountain range. He is willing to put up with the difficulties of viticulture, along with the wild animals, as he knows he can create truly special wines from such wonderful terroir. Despite his minimal intervention approach, Daniel still manages to achieve remarkable ripeness and acidity from the grapes, and does not need to make adjustments in his winemaking (nothing added and nothing taken away!). This shows his mastery at work and how well suited the grapes are to their natural home.
